Deaths near Everest’s summit blamed on commercialisation of expeditions

Adventurers trying to reach the summit of Mount Everest have been facing an even harder climb this season. Overcrowding is reportedly creating queues which cause delays in the so-called ‘death zone’, where the lack of oxygen can be fatal.

In 2019 alone at least 13 climbers have died. The cause for the deaths is believed to be the combination of bad weather, lack of experience and the high number of permits issued to people by the authorities.
